Sandon, March 11. ��� [Special to The Tribune.] ��� A landslide  iu town carried away six residences. William S. MeLeod of South  Granville, P. B. I., was killed. Mrs. W. Nash, William Lovett and  Mrs. AV. Fogg aud daughter were injured. MeLeod's body was found  under the ruins by a rescue party at 0:30 tonight.  Sandon, March 11.���[Special to The Tribune]���A terrible fatality  occurred ���hero today at noon by which William MeLeod lost his life  and Mrs. 11. Nash lies in a very precarious condition. Just above the  Slocan gulch the banks are very steep, and the rain and thaw of the  last 30 hours had so loosened the earth along the hillside that at  twelve thirty a mass, one hundred yards long and seventy-five yards  wide, came down with a rush, completely wrecking six residences in  the Lovatt addition. The houses were alloceupied except one, and  fears for the safety of the residences brought the whole town to the  scene of the disaster.  AVilliam MeLeod was known to have been in his cabin farther  up the hill at the time of the slide and it was apparent from the first  that his chances of escape were .slim. Notwithstanding the. danger  of further slides many went to work, to excavate the ruins, but it was  slow work. One of the wrecked houses caught fire and threatened  the destruction'of the addition, but was gotten under control by the  fire brigade. One hundred men worked like Trojans from 1 o'clock  until 7 to find MeLeod's remains. He was discovered under twenty  feet of debris smothered, but little disfigured.  Rescuers started, to work on the wrecked buildings and Mrs. Fogg  and her little girl, were gotten out of the debries only slightly injured. A fewr moments after Mrs. Nash was taken from the ruins  and carried to the house of some friends,Where it Was found that she  had suffered serious injury. The-Rev. J. A." Ferguson escaped  entirely unhurt from a building that was literally reduced to kindling, and William Lovett was rescued with no worse injury than a  dislocated shoulder.  AAllIiam MeLeod was a native of East Granville, P. E. I., and has [  followed mining in this camp for seAreral years, lie was a prominent  and active member of the Miners' union who have taken caie of the  remains and will conduct the funeral. This has been a sad week for  Sandon, and Billy MeLeod is the thiid of their numbers whom the'  union boys mourn within the past Aveek. MeLeod helped to dig the  graves for Sheppard and McFarlane who were killed by the Noble  Five Slide on Thursday morning.  thxxxi^zixzzzixizxxzKxxxxxxxzxzxzzxxzxxxzzzxzzxzzzixxzxzxxzxxzzxxzzxzxxxxzzizxixxxzxzxxiizxxizzzzzxxi: mnffl  Ij  DANCERS OF A MINER'S LIFE  ���    ; Terribly Exemplified.  KA&I.O, March 9.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Few details have been  received here of the' fatal Noble  Five snowslkle. Andy Giierson, of  the Slocan hotel was tho only passenger today from Sandon over the  K. & S. Co.'s line. Speaking to  aTuiuuNfi representative he said  lie did nc-t go to the scene of the  slide himself, bnt he heard that  three men were caught in it aud  only one escaped. As already mentioned, Sheppard of Cody was one  ofjthe victims and a man named  Mclnues is believed to have been  the second unfortunate miner.  The manager of - the Noble Five  was not at vhe mine wheu the accident oceurrdd.   lie wexit down to  �� Alcloria on Monday.   He was communicated with by wire and is ex-  - peeled to -reach- Sandon���tonightr  There arc between 30 and 35 men  Avoiking at the mine.  It seems that Dick Boetcher had  the hardest kind of luck in losing  his life up on his claim on the  south fork of Kaslo creek. There  was only three feet of eat th on top  of him and some of that had run in  since the cave-in occurred. But a  big boulder hud BocLcher by the  foot and despite the desperate  efforts which he evidently made to  free himself that cruel rock phmed  him down and suffocation was Intend. Had it not been for that one  rock It. O. Boetcher would havo  been alive today. It look eight  men a long time to get his body  out. All the appearances point to  his having died at least a week ago.  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  J. G. Sullivan of Trail, went to  Balfour on Saturday with A. F.  Proctor, engineer in charge of the  Balfour construction work, to go  over the plans for the ercetiou of  slips at, Procter's Landing. The  slips will be 14.00 feet in length with  two freight and one passenger  truck. Tho lake end will be submerged three feet to enable barges  to run up and connect with the  rail.  Tho officer commanding the Nel  yon ville company having received  instructions to furnish a quota of  four men toward the provincial  regiment to garrison Halifax, has  *Sjeen notifying the members of tho  members of the corps of the fact.  Up to Saturday night three men,  privates Wovley, Wiiite aud Tur  ner had signified their desire to  join tho new regiment. The trio  are good militia men and will be a  credit to their home'corps. It is  anticipated that other members of  tho company will embrace the opportunity to see a bit of soldiering.  The .term of service is one year. *-/��  The Nolson and Fovt Sheppard  train did not come in last night,  but got stalled at Waneta. This  is the second time Avithin less than  a Aveek that .the train has failed to  reach Nelson.  The regular monthly meeting of  the Board of Trade will be held  this evening at the Board of Trade  rooms at S o'clock. A number of  important matters will come up  and a full attendance of members  is requested. It is also to bo hoped  that the board AA'ill confine its attention to matters within its own  province, and not go into subjects  with which it has nothing to do  and knows less.  AVilliam Johns of Robson, was  -sentenced to six months- imprison"  ment on Saturday evening by stipendiary magistrate Crease for  stealing a ham from a Chinaman  named AVah Lee. After being arrested and shackled, the prisoner  succeeded in breaking jail, getting  rid of one shackle and arming himself with an axe, and constable Forrester, avJio captured him, had to  disarm him at the point of a revolver. Jlis attempt to got away  contributed to the heavy sentence  imposed on him.  Tho fact may not be generally  knoAvn that the isolation hospital  on the Hall mines road consists of  two buildings. The first of these  to be erected has been used by the  physicau in charge, the patient and  the nurse. The remaining building,  Avhich is the largest of the tAvo, has  not been utilized as yet, and is  aArailablo*at any time for the re-'  ceptiou of suspects Avithout fear of  contagion, as Avell as for fumigating  clothing and bedding. This building will doubtless be allowed to remain intact for a possible emergency as there is no danger of infection about it.  II. BoAvdcn AAras arraigned before  police magistrate Crease on Saturday morning, on tho charges already  ai set forth in Tiik Trihi/ne, and Saws  i m remanded until the morning. Galliher k AVilson have been retained  for tho defence.  tendered a farewell banquet on  Saturday night at the Hume Hotel  by a number of his frieiids.  All the plant for the Ontario  Powder Works at six-mile point  has been delivered, and the company's men are fitting the machiu-  ery together with the hope of commencing active operations toAvard  the end of next week. The works  comprise five buildings and. tAvo  more are to be added in the immediate future.  On Tuesday last the Avater in the  lake reached the loAvest mark of the  year, and at this point it Avas 15  inches above the extreme loAAr water  mark of last year. Since Tuesday  the water has steadily risen until it  was 3 inches higher yesterday and  still going up sloAvly.  Superintendent Troup has been  confined to the house for several  days with a slight indisposition. ,  The dramatic portion of the  vaudeville entertainment in aid of  the Canadian patriotic fund now  being arranged by E. P. AVhalley,  has been slightly changed by the  substitution of the comedietta  "Uncle's Will" for "Billing and'  Cooing." The change is : generally  considered to be likely to result in  a considerable improvement in the  program. It is proposed to wind  up the evening's' entertainment  with the farce "My-Turn Next,"  than which no funnier one act play  has never been Avritten.  News has beeii received in town  that Andrew Laidlaw a Avell known  Spokane mining broker has floated  a company in Montreal to build a  smelter at or near Greenwood to  operate on the Loder-Pyritic  system. Mr. LaidlaAv will be in  Greenwood shortly for the purpose  of securing four or five carloads of  ore to ship to Leadville, Colorado,  for sampling.  H. G. McCuIloch returned on Saturday night after an unsuccessful  attempt to get to the Beatrice  mine, The ice on the east arm of  Arrow lake is just breaking up, and  it is impossible to get iu on foot5i  while the steamers will not venture  the passage until the iGe is more  thoroughly broken up.  The Avork on tho Balfour extension has progressed to a stage  ,where labor is required on a large  scale. ' Engineer Proctor estimates  that 1000 men will be on the grade  by the end of this Aveek,and states  that after Thursday every man  Avho applies will=be taken on.  JOSEPHMARTIN'S PLATFORM  POSITION AT DREIFONTEIN  News From the Front.  London, March 12.���4:10 a. m.���  The war office maps show a group  of kopjes anil a large AA'ater pan at  Dreifontein, a position Avhich has  apparently considerable defensive  advantages. The Boers, who re-  trea ted to Abraham's kraalf rom Poplar grove, must have moA^ed south-  Avard,_o_r else a _fresh force- must  have come from Bloemfontein or  the Orange river. The opposition  met at Dreifontein was unexpected,  the idea being that if there Avas  auy resistance, it Avould bo at  Peth&berg. Profiting by their experience, the Boers were preparing for a British flanking movement,  but in extending their positions in  order to avoid being outflanked,  they probably AVeakened their  centre, thus making it possible for  tho British infantry to carry this  with a bayonet charge.  Lord Roberts' dignified protest  against the abusa of the AVhite flag,  is regarded as the most important  factor of the situation. According  to the accounts supplied by the'  correspondents, the instance appears to haAre been most flagrant,  and there is no doubt'but that lord  Roberts Avill carry his threat into  execution.  There is no confirmation of tho  rumors of a raising of the siege of  Mafeking, concerning Avhich the  gravest anxiety continues to be felt.  R. S, Kinghorn, manager of the  Nelson branch of the Vancouver  IlardAvaro Company, leaves tonight  for Montreal, whence he will return  to Arancouver, Avhere he will take  up a permanent Abode.   Ho was  Boer Treachery,  London, March 12.���A dispatch  to tlio Daily Mail from Avogel Kop  dated Sunday, March 11th, says:  "The white flag treachery Avas personally witnessed at Dreifontein by  lord Roberts, Avho Avas looking  through a telescope when the  AVelsh were charging and saw the  Boers hold up their hands, sIioav  the Avhitc flag and drop their guns.

POLITICAL   POINTERS.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx  arxxrxixiiixxxxxxxzxxxxxrxxrx. cims  ANOTHER VICTORY IN LORD ROBERTS' ONWARD MARCH  Over a Hundred Dead Boers Left on the Field.  The New Denver delegate of the  Conservative convention, that is to  be held at Nelson on the 10 th, is to  be a Mr. Fauquier, who made himself ridiculous during the late  trouble in the Slocan by toadying  to the American and Old Country  managers in that district. He aspires to be the straight party candidate for Slocan riding.  The straight party men of Rossland have decided that mayor  feoodeve 'will best suit the mine  managers, and he is slated for the  Conservative nomination' in the  Rossland liding. It is strange that  'a party Avhoso rank and file are almost solid for the" only effecthre  hiAv that has been passed in the interest of men Avho Avork iu mines,'  "should, in PA-ory instance, show  itself in faA'or of selecting as standard bearers mon Avho are either  secretly or openly in faAror of repealing the hiAA'.  It has been decided by the "machine" leaders of the Conservative  party in Nelson that the party's  candidatemust bo Thomas G. Procter  of Procter's Landing.  The opponents of the Straight-  Conservative - Mine - Owners' - Combine Party can easily carry every  riding in West Kootenay by nominating men who live in and are identified Avith_ business interests in  their-:respective lidings. No man  should bo nominated who is subser-  A-ient to any one class Or any one  interest. Ever Mnce mining became  an industry in A Vest Kootenay, the  mine ownuis aiul mine managers  haA'e been found on the one side  and the mine Avorkers on the other.  As long as mine owners and mine  managers flock by themselves, so  long Avill they be beaten at the  polls, as tliey deserve to be.  Premier Martin's platform is  framed to catch A'Otes in Vancouver  and tho loAver I'Yasor Valley. Government1 ownership of railways  should not be In i tin Led by the  building of a short piece of road  that Avould not open .up a new  country: a road that Avould merely  be a competitor for the traffic of  a section of the'province that has  not sufficient traffic to pay the operating expenses of the roads that  are iioav running through it. Had  the premier proclaimed himself in  favor of building a road through  the northern part of the province,  a -section that is Avithout roads of  of any kind, the people might haA'e  believed that he was sincere in his  advocacy of a principle that must  sooner or later become a political  issue; but the premier, evidently,  cannot see beyond the boundaries  of the city in Avhich he lives. With  him, all roads must begin and end  in the city that i-> owned by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company.  Boers Squealing.  London, March 12.���The Daily  Mail his received the following despatch from Pretoria dated Saturday March 10th ancl censored by  Axz:  Dreifontein, March 11.-0:35 a. in.���Broadwood's caA'alry brigade advancing ou Bloemfontein unexpectedly found the Boors  in a strong position iu the Dreifontein, and yesterday geueral  Kelly-Kenny's division arriving, severe fighting ensued. The Boers  resisted stubbornly but were driven from their centre position,'leaving'a'number'of dead and 40 prisoners. The British force is moA'iug  forward today.  During the fighting, in which five regiments took part Avith artillery, the Boers, though forced from their centre position, clung  tenaciously to the other" kopjes, shelling tho British freely with three  guns and two Arickers-Maxims. *  The British cavalry began to turn the Boer position but night fell  before the movement Avas completed: The Boers retired during the  night. '���������'���  London, March 11.���A despatch to the war office from lord Roberts  da-ted Dreifontein March 11th, 7:15 a. m. says:  "The enemy opposed us throughout yesterday's march, and, from  their intimate knowledge of the country, gave us considerable trouble.  Owing, however, to the admirable conduct of the troops the enemy  was unable to prevent us reaching our destination. The brunt of the  fighting fell upon general Kelly-Kenny's division, tAvo battalions of jj  which, the Welsh and Essex, turned the Boers out of their two strong jj  positions at the point of the bayonet." jj  London, March 11.���A despatch to the war office from lord [j  Roberts dated Dreifontein, 9:15 am., says: "I cannot get the precise  number of casualties before I march, but Avill communicate it soon as  possible.

C MONDAY, MARCH  12 1900  Ward  :i  Fi  i i  IS-s  V  li  lv  las  II  1  If!  r  Changed Shoes at our Store  We have every size from nothing to twelves  We can fit father, mother,  sons and daughters to perfection  ��lte f&Ktbxxm.  Robert Cassidy, a Victoria lawyer, has contributed his page to the  political   literature!   of the week.  He has given his views upon the  introduction of federal party lines  in provincial politics.      They are  interesting for more reasons than  one.     Robert Cassidy is one of the  prominent. Conservatives  of what  may be called  the Island faction,  but he differs from most   of the  other Conservative leaders in that  he  does not  study   tho   political  effect, from  a "party standpoint, of  -   Avhat he may AA'rite.    For this reason his views may be regarded as  somewhat more sincere than   the  studied   publications of   the  more  politic    politicans.     Cassidy   says  it would pass the Avit of man to devise a policy for guidance in provincial matters, Avhich, by the Avildest  stretch  of   tho imagination, could  have   anything   in common with  federal party lines.   Yet Mr. Cassidy is iu favor of party government.   He would have a provincial  Conservative    party,    though    it  might be called by another name,  Avhich Avould stamp its opposition  to  "socialism, demagogism, popu-  " ism and Avild experiments Avith  " the public resources."    The interest Avhich attaches to this expression lies in the fact that it no doubt  voices the real opinion of most of  the Conservative leaders avIio are  iioav striving to pull the avooI over  tho eyes of tho labor partj^ in their  professed friendship for labor legislation.       Men's  natures    are   not  changed by the "passing of resolutions of political expediency.     This  applies to the manipulators of the  local Conservative machine as well.  They  cannot   serve two interests  Avhich clash upon the' party's platform.   Thev cannot remain true to  that plank in the platform which  declares in favor of the eight-hour  law and at the   same time   keep  faith Avith the mine managers Avho  are acting in concert Avith them.  This being so, may not their friendship for the machine be taken to  mean that the mine'owners'have a  satisfactory assurance that in the  event of a.

W. .Higgins,-whose'zeal for  the public weal   has caused   him  alternately    to     desert     premier  Turner and premier Semlin, stands  aghast at the proposition that the  approaching    elections   should   be  deferred xmtil tiie revision of the  voters' lists in May.   He contends  that premier  Martin should  either  be obliged to go to the country at  once, or be kicked out of office ; but  on top of this comes a rumor from  Victoria that an election need not  be expeeted   until the   middle  of  June, or until after the voters' lists  have   been    revised.     Everything  points to the premier's  determination to have a revision of the lists  before an election.    So keen Avas he  upou this point that it was one of  the terms of his agreement Avith  Messrs Kellie and Kidd that the  Elections Act should be amended so  as to admit of an earlier revision  than it contemplated.    Martin has  it in his power iioav to defer  the  elections  uutil after  the revision.  He may be counted upon doing so  unless      the     lieutenant-governor  again applies the screAvs.  Charles D. J. Christie  GENERAL BROKER  P. O. Box 523.

Thero is ovidontly a tremendous  e/Torfc boing  made to rally  every  available burgher of the Free Sbate  to tho side of Mr. Sfceyn, &ays Black  and White.    Even  Mr. Fraser, the  lato   chairman   of   tho Volksraad,  irho  has  taken  so   determined   a  fetaiul against his  country's  action  in joining tho   Transvaal   against  ^Bnglaiid, has been   commandered.  11 Avould be difficult to imagine a  more painful position than  that in  which this man finds himself.   One  can  only hope  that  some   means  will be found for his  deliverance.  Mr. Fraser represents Bloemfontein  in tlio Free State Kaad. in which he  is far and away the ablest and most  educated mind ; in fact, about the  only   min   who   can see   straight  in     that     misguided      body     of  Boern.     Au    attorney    by     profession,  he  is  the son of the Rev.  Colin Fraser,   who  went  out with  Dr.   Mo If at   from   tho   Church   of  Scotland as :i missionary to  South  Africa.    After a university  training in Aberdeen he settled down to  practice   law   amongst    the    Free  State ���farmers.      Every   available  moment from,his busy professional  life of something like thirty years  John Fraser has given to the affairs  of the  Free State.     Its  railways,  the building up of its remarkable  educational institutions, founded in  tho first instance by the  great sir  (Jeorgn Grey, its charitable institutions aud couutless details of  what  may   justly   bo   described   as  the  model  republic of the  world, the  I Free State  owes to the  man who,  teeaupQ of his   British  parentage  and openly professed affection and  ^friendliness  for England, has twice  ('boon denied the presidency by the  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U, S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Boers of the Free State.     It is not  too much to say   that   had John  Fraser been at the   helm   of   his  country's affairs in the recent crisis  there would have been no war today  in South Africa.     There is an open  secret .that his defeat in 1890 was  managed by Krugcr's secret service  funds, for after repeated  efforts to  win over the sturdy Scottish Africander, Oom Paul gave it up as a  bad job and turned his attention to  more promising soil.    "That's  the  only man I can do nothing with,"  growled angrily his honor on one  auspicious   occasion,   referring   to  Fraser.    The   writer happened   to  see a letter recently received by a  relative  in England   from  one  of  Mr. Eraser's daughters.    She  says,  writing from Bloemfontein:'   "The  place is simply deserted, and the  feeling is too bitter foi words.    O!  you cannot think what a condition  Steyn aud Fischer have landed our  state into. It is too dreadful. Their  names will be a curse in this state  before very long.   Fancy,  all our  three boys were commandered.   So  far, father has got the two youngest off, and  my uncle, Mr. Palmer,  has got Johnnie off.    O! it is too  wicked!    Now we must prepare to  find  ruin  staring us  in   the face.  Poor father!    I do feel for him, he  is quite heart broken about this  war.    He  has  fought   this   policy  single-handed, but  what  could  he  do with such a majority against  him.   Tho Boers mean to make a  stand for it this time.   It's their  last chance.   In the long run they  must be beaten."  SMOKE  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.  Flooring  local and coast.

THE0  MADS0N  In the paragraph published in  Saturday's TitmuxE relating to Nelson's wholesale trade, the list of the  shipments made on Friday by the  Urackman & Ker Milling Company,  Limited, was inadvertently omitted. They consigned goods to  Creston, Salmo, Ainsworth, Ymir,  Erie and Hykerfc's.  William   Gooding   was   brought  back  to the  city Saturday night  and lodged in the police  cells;    He  will be arraigned before magistrate  Crease today,  and   the  charge  of  forgery   will   be   proceeded with.  Gooding says he  was  drunk  when  he   committed the offence.    Chief  Jarvis states that the officials at  Northport were most courteous in  the matter of expediting Gooding's  apprehension and refused to accept  anything for the prisoner's maintenance from Wednesday to Saturday.  ��It is probable that Nelson's fleet  of pleasure craft will be materially  increased in number in the spring.  George Halo will launch his electro-  vapor craft this week, and immediately lays the keel of a handsome  29-foot steam launch. When the  latter is off the stays it is understood he will commence the construction of a 25-foot electro-vapor  launch for a well-known member of  the legal fraternity, and still another gasoline launch is said to be  contemplated.  Captain J. W. Troup issued his  first official circular as sujDerinten-  dent of the Kootenay sections, on  Saturday. It related to the various  appointments here and in the Columbia & Western road, reading as  follows: Captain J. C. gore is appointed port captain of all the  steamers operated under my supervision, with office,at Nelson; D. O  Lewis, C. E., continues in charge  as roadmaster of the Columbia &  Kootenay and Slocan branches with  ollice at Nelson; J. S. Lawrence is  appointed trainmaster of the entire  Columbia' & Western system, including tho Rossland branch, with  office at Smelter Junction; J. T.  Sullivan continues in charge as road-  master of the Rossland branch;  with office at Smelter Junction: effective March 10th. H. L. Johnston,  C. E., is appointed, roadmaster of  the Columbia & Western Branch,  (West Robson to Midway), with office at Robson; P. G. Gallagher is  appointed roadmaster of tho Nakusp & Slocan Branch, with office  at Rosebery, succeeding H. L. John^  ston, C. E., transferred.  Since the gas woiks commenced  operations they have turned out  live or six tons of gas house ccike.  This is not the quality of colce used  for smelting, but is excellent for  ordinary fuel purposes. The company is chartered to make furnace  coke for use in smelters, and have in  contemplation^ a phin_tq_erect a  plant here capable of turning out  approximately 50 tons daily. Such  a plant would cost not less than  $50,000.  E. C. ITall, C. P. R. operator at  Rossland, died suddenly on Friday  night after a few hours' illness. ITe  formerly worked at Kaslo and was  well-known to tho C. P. R. men in  this district. His telegraphic signature was "II."  For the past hix days not a case  of typhoid fever has existed in  Nelson, a Satisfactory condition of  affairs which lias not been tho case  for two years. Citizens and business men realize that the abandon"  me)it of wells and springs for the  city water has a salutary effect in  keeping typhoid at a distance, and  the sanitary regulations enforced  during the last month has also  borne its result.  D. Wilson returned on Saturday  from a trip to the Rirdseye mine.  He reports that the mine is looking  exceedingly well, and that tho ore  body in the winze is increasing in  size and value with every foot of  depth attained. Mr. Wilson intends to return to London on  Wednesday.  George Dech, the eight yeay old  ���Galician boy who was taken from  the steamer Moyie to the general  hospital, died yesterday morning of  septic poisoning. When first taken  to tho hospital tho lad rallied aud  it was thought that lie would recover. Complications set iu, however, and for three or four days  charge realized that the case was  hopeless. The father was at the  boy's bedside when death occurred.  A casket will be provided by the  city and the remains will be taken  to Spokane for burial.  A quiet wedding took place at the  Methodist parsonage on Saturday  afternoon when William F. Sage  and Rose Dell Glandon of Mount  Pleasant, Iowa, were united in the  bonds of matrimony by the Rev.  John Robson, B. A. Mr. Sage is a  cigar maker and purposes making  Nelson his home for a time.  The Nelson minstrels leave today  for their three days' tour in the  Slocan. The boys have practiced  assiduously aud will give a really  first-class entertainment. They  march from the opera house to the  depot this morning at 8:30 o'clock.  On Wednesday a party of enthusiasts will go over to Kaslo to witness  the performance there.  Dr. LaBau was in Rossland Saturday in connection with his duties  as provincial health officer. Nurse  Hearle, who is in charge of his  office is ill and is. being nursed by  nurse Fahey of Winnipeg.  The officials of the Baptist church  have despaired of the services of  Rev. H. H. Hall of Portage La  Prairie, and last night a telegraphic  message was sent to a Nova Scotia  clergyman inviting him to take the  vacant pastorate. Mrs. M. L.  Rattray conducted both services  yesterday.  Copies of the last militia general  orders have been received in the  BUSINESS   MENTION.
